Hey, I’m Kristen, your resident milchtoast. I’m a writer who was born and raised in Canada but has lived elsewhere for a number of years.
I started this blog in 2011 when a work opportunity took my husband and I to Zurich, Switzerland. If you’re interested in how the blog got its name, please see my first post.
We lived in Zurich until late 2014, when we moved to Pittsburgh, PA, USA, where we now live with our toddler.
I’m a former editor at Vine Leaves Literary Journal, and have recently (spring 2017) posted some of my craft-advice articles written for them here. I’ve not been blogging since moving stateside, but I continue to write fiction and may well revive this space someday.
Thanks for stopping by!
